The wonderful ISBE conference, this year in Minneapolis! Four talks on our work: Luke McClean on honeyguide vocal mimicry, Nick Horrocks on camouflage and thermoregulation in ground-nesting birds, Cassie Stoddard (of Princeton University) on egg pattern signature evolution in cuckoo finch hosts, and Claire Spottiswoode on honeyguide-human mutualism.
